  • B.S. in Biology - Gettysburg College, 2023


I am a Ph.D. student in the Hoke Lab interested in animal behavior, bioacoustics, and neural mechanisms during various social interactions. I received my B.S. in Biology at Gettysburg College where I primarily studied how airborne sound and substrate-borne vibrational signals, produced by calling animals, change as they propagate through their environment. Additionally, I did fieldwork in the tropical rainforest where I studied whether arboreal snakes can locate prey using vibrational cues. I've also conducted tests studying aggressive behaviors and mate choice in red-eyed treefrogs (Agalychnis callidryas).
